Saints TE Jimmy Graham breaks two-game slump
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was once again a big part of the offense Monday night in Chicago. After catching three passes for 25 yards over his previous two games, Graham caught five passes for a team-high 87 yards in the easy win.

Graham tied for the team lead with seven targets. However, he was unable to come down with a contested end-zone fade late in the third quarter.

Graham looked spry, pulling in catches for 29 and 22 yards and trying to hurdle safety Brock Vereen in the fourth quarter. Graham will try to end his three-game scoreless streak Week 16 against the Falcons.

Fantasy Analysis | 1418019531
No reason to panic over Jimmy Graham
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

OK. So one week after getting shut out at Pittsburgh, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, heretofore considered a Fantasy stud, caught just three passes for 25 yards Week 14 against Carolina. That's upsetting. I'll grant you that.

But what are you going to do about it? Maybe if trading was still an option, I could see how you might consider the possibility that the shoulder sprain he suffered way back in Week 5 is too much to overcome or that defenses have suddenly figured him out five years into his career. At that point, every tight end in the game is theoretically within your reach, so it doesn't hurt to examine every possible angle.

But this late in the season, the only places you can look for alternatives are the waiver wire and your bench. And unless you somehow have both Graham and Rob Gronkowski on your roster, I'm going to say neither offers an adequate replacement.

Even if Graham's shoulder is still bothering him, as he suggested earlier in the week, he still has six touchdowns in seven games since returning. You know how many other tight ends have six touchdowns during that stretch? Try zero. Graham still led the Saints in targets in Week 14 with 11. You know how many tight ends have gotten more than 11 targets in any game this season? Heading into Week 14, only seven. Graham himself was the only one to do it more than once.

The last two weeks haven't been what you hoped to see from a player of his caliber, but Graham's potential from week to week remains too great for you to sit him.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham held to three catches Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A disastrous Sunday afternoon at home for the Saints certainly filtered down to struggling tight end Jimmy Graham.

Graham, who is dealing with a sore shoulder, was held to just one catch in the first three quarters and finished with three for a mere 25 yards despite having 11 passes thrown his way. It's the fifth game this season in which he has gained 36 yards or less through the air.

He will try to raise his level of play against the visiting Bears next Monday night.

Report: Shoulder injury still bothering Saints' Jimmy Graham
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Despite not being listed on the Saints’ injury report, tight end Jimmy Graham told reporters Friday his shoulder has affected his ability to play, reports NBCsports.com.

“At times this year the shoulder has really held me back sometimes,” Graham said. “Other times I’m able to fight through the pain. I just got to man up and keep doing it.”

Graham did not record a catch or a target Week 13 against the Steelers. The Saints play the Panthers Week 14.

Steelers' defensive tactics keep Jimmy Graham off stat sheet
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Fantasy owners were devastated Sunday when star Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had no catches during a 35-32 victory against the Steelers. In fact, Graham wasn't even targeted in the win, which was highly unusual since he leads New Orleans with 87 targets.

While Fantasy owners were not happy with Graham's production, Graham himself seemed fine with what transpired Sunday.

"For me, it's all about the W's. I don't care if it's zero catches, 10 catches or 20, as long as we win," Graham said, per ESPN.

Graham explained his absence of stats was a result of the Steelers using several different defensive tactics against him, which included safeties Troy Polamalu and Will Allen were undercutting most of his routes.

"Usually, they wait 'til I break. But he's a smart player," Graham said of Polamalu. "And [Allen], he's a smart player too, he did it once or twice. I can tell that they're watching a lot of film and looking at tendencies and looking at formations and splits. 

"But we'll watch film and we'll look at ways that we can expose that."
